MrEviLDeD Posted January 17, 2017 Share Posted January 17, 2017 Hey everyone, Weather has finally warmed up a bit and I can get back under the hood to get more done on the waterpump/timing belt/tensioner task. I have only removed the upper cover and removed the harmonic balancer etc. Today I am going to remove the spark plugs, and do my best as getting the engine at TDC. My question is this and is based on other posts I have read here on the napora forums that the timing gears move or can move once the belt is removed. As I will most likely not be able to get the entire job done today I am concerned that I will walk away from the truck only to come back the next day and the valve cams be out of whack and my being to stupid to know how to put them back... Do I have that much to worry about.. Do I mark them so I know? Will they move that much? Do I just put the old belt back on with with right tooth count to keep the gears from moving when I close up for the day? Please excuse all these additional nagging questions. Maybe I am over thinking things? Be well everyone, Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
